System Development Problems One survey (Gladden 1982) estimates that 75% of IS developments undertaken are never completed, or the resulting system is never used. According to the Standish Group (1995) only 16% of all projects are delivered on time and within their budget.

Problems include low productivity, a large number of failures, and an inadequate alignment of ISs with business needs . 6
